Summary meaning:The Brahmin first prays God that the time of doing whatever it may be should become holy and this he is sure is achieved by prayer to God.Then he tells when he is doing this japa, for example which year, which season, which day and so on.And he says that this japa is being done as a repentance for his not perfornming various religious duties during the year that he ought to have performed.The main manthra is a prayer to pardon the lapses which were due to Kama(passion) krodha(anger) and lopa(avarice)

Summary meaning:Here again apart from locating oneself with reference to time , one locates himself with reference to place also.We are supposed to live in Jambu Dweepa, Bharatha Kanda which is south of the great mountain Maha meru.Then again this Bhasratha Kanda is blessed with many holy rivers and holy places.Then prayer is done to God to pardon sins committed by word, thought and deed, because this was done inspite of his great grace which made us be born as human beings after several wheels of birth.Also the sins performed during several ages in life is highlighted.Some of the sins specifically mentioned are those done while earning money without conscience, giving money to improper people, actions which did not suit the caste we are born in, sins due to non performance of actions which ought to have been done and so on. We pray God and tell him that we would take bath in holy pure water and then start the veda parayanas which is our duty as Brahmin.

4.Yagnopa veetha dharana manthra

After bath again change poonal by reciting manthra as given in s.No.1.Please note that now a days very rarely people take bath after mahaa sankalpam but do prokshana snanam i.e bath by sprikling of water on the head.

5.Kanda Rishi Tharpanam
1,Aachamanam
2,Shklaama baradharam
3.Om bhoo
4.Mamo patha samastha durida kshya dwara sri parameshwata preethyartham sravanyaam pournamaasyam adhyoyapakrama karmangam kanda rishi tharpanam karishye.
Wear poonal as garland and do tharpanam using water mixed with thil (black gingely) and akshatha
Each manthra has to be chanted thrice and tharpanam done.

1.Prajapathim kanda rishim tharpayami
2,Somam kanda rishim tharpayami
3.Agnim kanda rishim tharpayami
4.Viswaan devaan kanda rishim tharpayaami
5.Saahinkeer devatha upanishadha tharpayami
6.Yagnigeer devatha upanishadha tharpayaami
7.Vaaruneer devatha upanishadha tharpayami
8.Brhamanagum swayubhuvam tharpayaami
9.Sadasaspathim tharpayami
wear poonal in the normal fashion and then do aachamana.

Summary meaning:Tharpanam means really satisfying.By this tharpanam we satisfy the rishi(sages) of Soma(moon), Agni(fire), Viswaan devan(all gods looking after earth), etc.

5.Vedarambham

Though these are essential part of Avani avittam , I am not giving this because Vedic manthraas are very diffcult to transliterate in to English and reading them wrongly would be counter productive.

shalini said...

I am grateful to you for laying out in a simple way the whole procedure of sandhyavandhanam and upakarma.

Jai said...

could you please provide the sankalpam for New York, USA (EST)?

Kerala Brahmin said...

Mr Jai,
Please see the Manthras., There the sankalapa corrections for different IST times is mentiuoned. Correct it to New York, Ramachander

Bala said...

Could you advice the mantras are the same for Brahmachari boys as well or any portion to be eliminated or added?
Thanks for the clarifications.

Anonymous said...

Hello Sir, on 24th Aug 2010, here in USA (PST timings), marana yoga is prevailing for the day. So, in a temple near by, they are doing upakarma on 23rd August 2010 for yajur upakarma. However, in another temple, they are doing it on 24th august morning. Which one is correct?

Kerala Brahmin said...

Marana Yoga does not entail changes in Avani avittam dates. So you can perform on 24th There are no seperate manthra for Brahmacharis. They are supposed to do Samitha Dhanam on the morning of Avani Avittam, With best wishes, Ramachander

It would be great to have the slokas in Sanskrit
Even a Scan Version in Sanskrit uploaded as JPG or PDF would be very handy

ecophilo said...

Thanks a ton for this! Thanks to your patience, I will get to do the Yajur Upakarma easily this time.

Dear Mr. Ramchandar
Thanks for posting the Avaniavattam manthras. This is very useful for me and my son who will be performing his first avani avattam as the thread ceremony was performed for him only in June 2010.

Suresh said...

For those questions on "Onion eating" and the circumstances, my simple answer would be "manam irundhal maargam undu"

Krishna said...

I am residing in US and regularly use to goto temple for avani avittam. This time, due to late night work, I was not able to make it up. When googled, I saw your blog. Amazingly, it created a good environment and I was able to change my sacred thread so happily. Thanks much for sharing the contents. The meanings displayed at the end is really a big highlight. Thanks again sir!

Venkatakrishnan said...

Sir,
I would like to know whether the Kaandarishi tharpanam is different for Bodhayanam and Aapasthamba soothras?
Yesterday for the first time I saw a seperate set of mantras for Bodhayanam. My soothram is Bodhayanam.

Lakshminarasimhan said...

Many thanks for your help in posting procedures. I used it to benefit and performed to heart-felt satisfaction. Much appreciated.
